Abstract

Cervical and supraclavicular adipose tissue masses are relatively rare, being lipoma and hibernoma the most e less frequent forms.
The present paper deals with a case of a 72-year-old patient with clinical history of right supraclavicular nodular lipomatous mass, with cytological diagnosis of probable hibernoma. The histology of the surgical specimen confirmed the cytological suspicion.
